Working with Sara as our grant manager was a dream! Sara is professional, deeply invested, thorough, and timely. Additionally, her attention to detail is second to none. I haven't worked with a consultant who took such care with her work before. Sara really became a member of our team. I have complete trust in Sara and recommend her highly.

For a number of years now, Sara McCabe has been a true friend and asset to Steps to Success, a small educational nonprofit in Brookline, MA. She has primarily produced marketing materials for our annual fundraising event, but she used to write grants for us as well; this speaks volumes to the range and versatility of her talents.
Working with Sara is an absolute pleasure, largely because it’s so easy. She is always attentive to our needs, and conducts herself as the consummate professional that she is. We are so fortunate to have her creative magic animating our content, and her warm presence making the process an enjoyable experience for all. Our estimation of Sara could not be higher.
Tom McGrath, Steps to Success
In addition to being a pleasure to work with, Sara always goes above and beyond in her deliverables for our nonprofit clients. Her work is of high quality, and she consistently produces it on time if not early. She is also a great communicator and extremely dependable. I highly recommend Sara!

I wholeheartedly endorse Sara for any communications or editorial project. On our inaugural issue of GaBiz, she brought her carefully honed skills of detailed fact checking, critical thinking, eloquent writing, and generally being an eagle-eyed, focused copy editor. Plus, she's genuinely kind. After being the beneficiary of her sage editing skills, I can't fathom having done the project without her!

It was a joy to work with Sara, whose grace and good humor brightened every interaction. As the editor, she ensured our newsletter was engaging, accurate, and aesthetically pleasing by accessing her bottomless trunk of skills and finesse. Technologically savvy and blessed with an unfettered enjoyment of people, Sara managed changing demands and last-minute solutions with aplomb while watching every detail.

It has been my privilege and pleasure to work with Sara on several projects, and in various capacities. While at Texas Monthly, Sara was my manager and acted as a mentor, giving me valuable feedback on both my strengths and challenges. Her sensitive, straightforward communication style was fueled by a genuine desire to help me grow—not only as an employee, but also as a person.
When Sara launched her freelance career, we were thrilled to hire her as a writer, copy editor, fact checker, and proofreader. Her natural curiosity has worked in our favor as we’ve asked her to write and edit across a wide variety of subjects. From golf course design to city visitors’ guides to motorcycle culture and maritime industry, she’s always up to the task. She’s a wordsmith and doesn’t miss a detail.

As a small organization, Multicultural Refugee Coalition didn't have a development director, but with Sara as our fundraising consultant, we were able to get all of our systems in place, such as grant calendars, donor communications, donor database, marketing materials, and so much more. Sara also wrote grants that were not only very well done but enjoyable to read.
Sara even helped us to plan events and coordinated a very long and involved federal grant—all from afar. Weekly meetings with Sara were always a bright spot as she makes things better organizationally and also is so encouraging and kind and an overall pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Sara for all things development-related. You will certainly not be disappointed.
